Depends: On your symptoms, remember fibrocystic changes in the breasts are "changes" not a disease, the fact you have axillary lymphadenopathy and fibro adenoma, means that you have been evaluated professionally, please don't self medicate, danazol is an impeded androgens and has its side effects, so kindly follow up with a breast specialist, have a 2nd or 3rd opinion, it's your right, good luck ...Read more

What is done for a breast fibroadenoma lump?

What is done for a breast fibroadenoma lump?

Tissue-Diagnosis: Fibroadenomas are the most common breast tumors. Even the best of us can be fooled by exam or even ultrasound findings--biopsy is the best way to DX definitively. These do not need to be surgically removed although many women prefer to if they are large, palpable, and/or growing. The operation can be done under twilight anesthesia, usually in a cosmetic manner. Cryotherapy is another option. ...Read more

I'm 46 and had a core biopsy for a large breast lump. The diagnosis was fibroadenoma. Will it ever turn malignant?

I'm 46 and had a core biopsy for a large breast lump. The diagnosis was fibroadenoma. Will it ever turn malignant?

NO: Generally fibroadenomas are benign tumors that predcominantly occur in younger females of childbearing age. In and of themselves, they do not transform into malignant lesions. This is determined by other factors such as family history, genetic testing, calcfications, cellular atypia, etc. That will be a part of a complete hsitory and physical examination, . ...Read more

I'm 21 years old and have a lump in right breast. It's fibroadenoma. What happens to it in the future?

I'm 21 years old and have a lump in right breast. It's fibroadenoma. What happens to it in the future?

Depends: Fibrocystic disease of the breast (fcb) is annoying but not dangerous. It makes screening examination of the breast & mammography more difficult. Ultrasound & needle biopsy is needed at times to be sure it is just fcb. There are reports from britain that going without a bra helps this quite a bit. See http://www.007b.Com/fibrocystic_breast_pain.Php. Breast feeding & avoiding caffeine helps too. ...Read more

Lump found in rt. Breast at 5:30 position on 3/2012. Biopsy said fibroadenoma. Next us found lump at 7:30. Biopsy says fibroadenoma. Same lump?

Possibly: This is hard to answer without knowing more information. Was the first one completely exised or just biopsied? The breast radiologist should be able to answer your question. Regardless, both are benign so i would not worry. Fibroadenomas are not uncommon in young women. ...Read more

Anyone treated a recurrent fibroadenoma lump in a breast? What happens to it?

Anyone treated a recurrent fibroadenoma lump in a breast?  What happens to it?

New or incomplete: It is unlikely tht you have a recurrent fibroadenoma. In all likelihood it is a new mass or the previous one was incompletely excised. In either case, with a previous tissue diagnosis, no treatment may be required. However, if it is suspicous on ultrasound or mammo or mri, a biopsy may be recommended to establish a definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

I have a fibroadenoma lump 3cm on my left breast, is it necessary to surgically extract it? Because i honestly dont want to have a surgery

How do you know?: How do you know that it is a fibroadenoma? Did you have a needle biopsy? If it was not diagnosed by a pathologist from a tissue biopsy, you owe it to yourself to have it removed. It could be removed under local anesthesia. ...Read more

Am a 22yr old and i have a lump on my left breast. Doctors said its fibroadenoma. Is that dangerous? Is it necessary to extract it?

Fibroadenoma is beni: Fibroadenoma occurs in your females and is easy to diagnose by clinical exam and mammogram. Most fibroadenomas do not grow and can be left alone. But if it is increasing in size over 6 monthly examinations by the doctor and by your own self examination, then a biopsy and or removal may be the best choice of managing it further. Have your surgeon guide you further. ...Read more

History of fibroadenomas cryo 3 yr ago Lump in same breast, same place but smaller now. New doc says it's the same one cryo didn't work no new biopsy.

Same lesion: While cryosurgery has been used for years in treating tumors both benign and malignant, it has failed to become a standard for attempting complete therapeutic responses. Usually a solitary fibroadenoma is excised under local anesthesia. Cryo more often employed for malignancy but often fails to gain full control with smaller but residual lesion as in this case. Excision may still be beneficial. ...Read more

Benign fibroadenoma lump 3X2cm found on my left breast. Am 22yrs old. Is it necessary to excise it because i dont want to do a surgery & have a scar?

Benign fibroadenoma lump 3X2cm found on my left breast. Am 22yrs old. Is it necessary to excise it because i dont want to do a surgery & have a scar?

Breast lump: That is a fairly significant sized lesion. I am assuming a needle biopsy was performed to establish the diagnosis. While it most likely is benign - and never degenerate my recommendation would be to have it removed. Depending on where it is - an excision around the areola may hide the scar. Good luck ...Read more

Can a Doctor feel a fibroadenoma with
certainty? Have stone like 2inch lump for year and half at 2-4 O'clock left outer side breast no other symptoms

Not entirely: Breast lumps can be benign(Fibroadenoma) but if they are hard in consistency, they are more likely to be Cancerous. Fibroadenoma is commonly found in young women.At your age(78yr), I doubt that a physician can be certain that the lump in your Breast is a fibroadenoma. I would request a Biopsy be done to confirm the nature of this lump. ...Read more
